Is this temporary after rhinoplasty ? The nose looks bent and more nipped in on the right could this be due to swelling? The nostrils are also uneven.
I had open rhinoplasty 12 days ago, after taking a pic my nostrils are odd? (photo)

The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.
